Dedicated to Our Clients Legal Help Revolving Around Your Needs

undefinedMarc F. Plotnick

St. Petersburg Criminal Defense & Family Law Attorney

Founding attorney Marc F. Plotnick is in the legal field because he loves helping people. He also finds the challenge of putting his client in the best possible position to be extremely rewarding. As a second-generation attorney, Attorney Plotnick grew up around the law and learned from his father’s example that through dedication and hard work, a lawyer can give their client the tools they need to improve their lives.

As a former prosecutor, he learned how to look at a case from the State’s perspective. He also gained a thorough understanding of the workings of the State Attorney’s Office. This experience in prosecution allows him, as a defense attorney, to look at how the opposing counsel might make their case and build his legal strategy accordingly.

Attorney Plotnick believes that experience and relationships with peers are among the two most important assets a criminal attorney can possess. The relationships that defense attorneys build with Assistant State Attorneys is invaluable – if opposing counsel does not respect or trust a defense attorney, it can be a significant roadblock for their client’s case. He takes great pride in building and maintaining strong working relationships with his opposing counsel to help his clients toward a favorable resolution whenever possible.
